Members of the Recite Me team are getting ready to put on their dickie bow ties for the St James’ Square charity ball in aid of local children’s charity, Heel and Toe.
The ball will be taking place at https://www.thebiscuitfactory.com/ on Thursday 10 October 2019 with the North East’s very own Lee Ridley as the headline act for the evening.
Comedian Lee, also known as the Lost Voice Guy, won Britain’s Got Talent, along with the nation’s hearts, in 2018.
Heel and Toe is a North East charity that supports children with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities.
The charity receives no government funding and relies solely on donations and fundraising to provide free conductive education therapy and other subsidised therapies to over 160 children from all over the North East area.
Hosts of the event, St James’ Square is a cost effective, high quality law firm providing advice for businesses and individuals across the North East.
As their charity of the year, the firm aims to raise an amazing £40,000 for the Heel and Toe foundation. As well as the up and coming black-tie fundraiser they have taken part in team and client go karting and have planned a family Christmas cinema event. The firm will also contribute to help get to the overall target of £40,000.
Managing Partner of St James’ Square, Paul Monaghan said: “We’re absolutely delighted to announce that not only are we hosting the firm’s first ever charity ball but that the talented Lost Voice Guy will be headlining the event. I was fortunate enough to see Lee perform his comedy a few years ago so I’m looking forward to seeing him again at our ball.”
Lee said: “I’m delighted to be performing back in Newcastle later this year for the St James’ Square Charity Ball. I’ve seen some of the amazing work Heel and Toe do to help children with disabilities like mine so I’m pleased to be involved in what will be a very successful evening.”
Recite Me, CEO and founder Ross Linnet commented, “We are delighted to sponsor this glamorous ball for the amazing charity Heel and Toe. The work they do to support children with cerebral palsy is amazing. Everyone involved should be very proud.”
